In many cases, discretionary grant funds are distributed at different times during a grant period or additional funds are given during the grant period. In these cases, does the Governor's Office want to see an estimate of funds during the initial approval process, or would they prefer to approve multiple amendments throughout the term of the grant?

No. The Governor’s Office approval only applies to the Grant Opportunity(GTOP) and capturing the amount of funding that has been requestedvia the Grant Application (GTAP)and what was received via award (using the GTAW). Additional funding that may begiven at a later date or funds that are returned will be tracked in CORE Financial.
